Serious Knitting Time

I'm really looking forward to this coming weekend.  The family and I are going to visit some family for the weekend which means a long car ride ahead of us.  Fingers crossed, I will have several hours to sit and knit and really make some great progress on my wonderful pink baby blanket that I am anxious to show you.  I had a few other orders come through recently so I haven't been able to work on it in a while so it will be nice to get back to it this weekend if not before.

My to sew and to knit ideas are really starting to stack up in my head I need to really start to clear them out.  I have several sewing projects in varying levels of doneness (yes that's a word in my world!) on my sewing table as well as several ideas I'm considering for new products for Stitch Silly.  So much to do so little time!

Picture from Wine Enthusiast Article
Before I go for the day, I wanted to do a little cross promotion today.  My husband and I are active in a local winery in our region.  Virginia wines are becoming known for their great quality in recent years.  Some have argued that this region is the next Napa Valley, others will argue that Virginia wine is crap.  It's all in the eyes of the wine enthusiast.   That being said, since Barrel Oak Winery (BOW) opened its doors in 2008 they have been breaking the mold.  With so much hard work put into it, it was wonderful to see this article in Wine Enthusiast showing what a wonderful family and dog friendly winery we are.  They named us the top family friendly winery in the WORLD.  It's pretty exciting to be a part of so I just wanted to share the great news with you all. 


  1. The post about the winery was very interesting, especially as I didn't know there are any in Virginia! Good luck to you all - Nappa Valley needs some competition!

    Having finally overcome all the internet hiccups, pleased to say www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com is once more back in business! So glad to see that you're getting back to normal too - just don't get too immersed though!

    1. Isobel, fun fact for the day there is a vineyard or winery in all 50 states in the U.S. It really gives you a wine for all preferences and price points!

      I noticed life was quite around Coldham Cuddlies recently I was wondering what was up. Glad to see you're back in the game!
